A. Wright & Son are in the running to be crowned as the winner of Britain’s Best Banger after their Lincolnshire sausage won the East Midlands traditional category.

As part of British Sausage Week 2015, which is taking place between November 2 and 8 this year, our high quality Lincolnshire sausage is just one of many category winners looking to earn the esteemed title and will certainly face some meaty competition from across the UK. Due to take place in London on November 3, the award ceremony will be hosted by Michelin starred chef Michel Roux Jr and will celebrate all types of British sausage under the theme “Sausages of Distinction”.

The national competition has ran for the past 18 years and has awarded supermarkets and a number of butchers the title in previous years, while a traditional butchers based in West Yorkshire received the Best Banger accolade last year. Judges will taste a variety of sausages from the traditional pork and herb meats to much more adventurous flavours.

The company’s owner Andrew Wright said: “It’s the first time we have entered our Sausages into a competition, so to win the East Midlands Region on our first attempt in such a large competition is fantastic.”

Help support A Wright & Son by following British Sausage Week on social media by using the hashtags #sausageweek or #BSW. Make sure to tune in to Channel 5 on Saturday, November 5, to catch our winning sausages on The Saturday Show at 9.30am.
